Not saying Flacco is end-all, be-all, but he made pinpoint passes all over the field today. And there is not a single great QB that doesn't need some kind of help. The NE defense could not stop the Ravens tonight. Denver had them beat, and lost their damn minds, but Flacco still had enough arm and guts to throw a 70 bomb onto their mental lapse.

Listening to you, you'd think he was a schmuck riding Ray's coattails. Right now, I think it's Ray bumperhitching Flacco.

Rogers, Manning, Ryan and the great Brady are all making tee times. Flacco plays another week. Scoreboard.
Flacco won the game, he gets his props.  My issue is the revisionist history that Flacco is the benefactor of.  His sacred post season resume etc.  It's crap, it's bleh, coming into this season.  The guy can play, he has his moments no doubt, but plenty of QBs do.  But he also missed his moments, often.  I mean he played well today but he wasn't special.  He missed two throws in particular that at the time were big misses, not something elite special guys miss and walk away from.  

This is his first post season in which he hasn't lost a game yet, but you'd think the complete opposite by how they talk during the game in by the posts in here sometimes.

He was not special today by any means, he simply got the job done, when he needed to.  To ignore the effort his defense gave him today by making plays is crap.  Flacco scored 28pts, NE only failed to do that 4 times all season.  Think about that.

DU - "Flacco scored 28pts, NE only failed to do that 4 times all season. Think about that."

NE - 6 games against Fins, Jets, Bills............BR - 6 games against Browns, Steelers, Bengals - think about that.

Gad,

Dan Shaughnessy, the Globe writer who covers the Pats and Red Sox said as much in a talk with Mike Francesa today.  The Pats have a soft division. It isn't until the playoffs they meet a hard nosed team. Again this year, their soft schedule had them playing a soft team, Texans, and it wasn't until the final they met a team that could bring it.

The pats are not a soft team. They out-physical the AFCE. Then again, the AFCE is not the black and blue divison. 

The pats our physicalled the Colts and the Rams to get to or win  SBs. This time,with Gronkowski out and not having a tough guy as a WR, such as Boldin, they were done in.

You are in league with the Boston writers and radio guys and also Eric Mangini, who said as much. The refs let the team play hard ball. The pats(due to injury) were not able to keep up. Being the toughest kid in the AFCE is not the same as being the toughest kid in the AFC.  San Fran may have the same probleme come SB Sundayl

I don't know..SFO is not soft. Their pass D is not great, so once again Balt will throw. However, like the Brownies, their DL is nasty and can pressure Flacco, who is not the most mobile.

K2S
I didn't see much pressure on Ryan. One technical sack. Given that time Flacco will toast them
